Include README, ChangeLog, etc. in downloads

Reported by Jacek Antonelli | November 30th, 2008 @ 03:43 AM | in 1.0.0 Release

The download packages should include some of the project information text files:

  • README.txt
  • LICENSE.txt (needs to be added; text of the GPL)
  • ChangeLog.txt
  • RELEASE_NOTES.txt (needs to be written)
  • MANIFESTO.txt (maybe)
  • CONTRIBUTE.txt (maybe)

For Windows and Linux, they should be installed in the application directory. For Mac, they should be put in the disk image, I think.

    • Milestone changed from 1.0.0 RC2 to 1.0.0 Release
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    Doing this manually for RC2, but I'm going to try to mod the viewer_manifest to do it automatically for 1.0.0

    • Tag cleared.

    (Hi balp, thanks for the effort, but I had already 90% finished it myself.)

    Marking this as done. It works on Linux. Not sure about Windows or Mac, but the packaging process for those platforms isn't as automated, so it's not a big deal. (It should be making a doc/ directory somewhere.)

    I'm pretty sure it's working on windows, but mac ... Not sure, it was a few minutes work already, I knew the viewer_manifest file from my Balp Builds.
